Race Relations

by

Race Relations Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Kitano uses his own experiences as a Japanese American—including growing up in a World War II concentration camp—as one motivation behind this book. He views race relations from an Asian-American perspective so that many of the models and explanations are drawn from his own experiences.

Book News Annotation:

An undergraduate textbook discussing general issues and theories relating to race relations in the US, and surveying the major racial and ethnic groups. Among the issues are the goals of American society, racial stratification and inequality, and minority adaptations to dominated status. The groups include African-American, various Latino, native, Irish and Italian, and various Asian. First published in 1974 and most recently in 1991.
